paying more attention to what's going on in the car than what's going on outside of the car...and then there is always the person that isn't going to move over. >> all of these things contribute to our having a delayed response to many of the emergencies we respond to. these also contribute to our having a higher rate of accidents. >> but emergency vehicles have to get there! every second counts! it is a matter of life or death. what if the next call we responded to was a loved one? or...how about if it was to your home? or what if you were involved in an automobile accident? would you want emergency responders to get there in a hurry? would you want others to move over so we could get by and get to your emergency in a timely manner? >> then again...it is also ...the law! >> california state vehicle
code section 21806a states the following: >> when you see and hear an emergency vehicle approaching you, it is your obligation by law to pull over to the right and clear the road for them. the fine for 21806a of the vehicle code usually runs around $360 and it could be a possible point on your driving record. >> here are some useful tips on what to do to help us get there!
keep your music and radio level down so you can hear the sirens. curb cellar phone useage to a minimum while driving. use your mirrors often. watch for us...when going through intersections. in the city, when driving in congested areas, if you hear sirens or air horns and you do not see the flashing light, please do the following: slow down. stay calm. turn your radio down. check your mirrors frequently. stay focused and anticipate the emergency vehicle. don't: panic. (don't) enter an intersection until it's clear. while at intersections, and you are stopped and you hear a siren or see flashing lights, do the following: look to see where the emergency vehicle is approaching from. if the emergency vehicle is
behind you, safely move towards the right. if the emergency vehicle is approaching from the front or side streets, remain stopped until they have passed. >> if you are approaching an intersection and you hear a siren or see flashing lights, please do the following: safely pull to the right. stop before entering the intersection. don't stop in the middle of the intersection! if you are on a one-way street and you hear a siren or see flashing lights, you need to: stay calm and alert. pull over to the far right. and stop when safely able to do so. >> don't: follow emergency vehicles -- stay 500 feet behind. don't: move until all emergency vehicles have completely passed. while driving on a freeway or highway and you hear sirens or see flashing
lights, please do the following: move to the right when it is safe to do so. reduce speed and let emergency vehicles pass. don't: try to pass an emergency vehicle while it is responding with red lights and sirens. people think what they are doing is more important than the incidents we are responding to. we would like them to approach it from this angle: if the emergency that we are responding to was to the home of their loved ones or in their own home, how quickly would they want us to get there? any help we can get from the public is greatly appreciated. that's all we ask. please keep in mind that you must obey any traffic direction, order, or signal a traffic officer, police officer or firefighter gives you. you must obey any order in an emergency or special
